About Lise

Hi! It's great to be here.

I'm a screenwriter, with feature scripts that have garnered some nods of approval:
-- Selectee, Black List / Women in Film Feature Lab
-- Semifinalist at Nicholl Fellowship, Austin Film Festival (x2), Fresh Voices, Creative Screenwriting's Unique Voices

Locally, I co-chair the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild, have served as contest reader, judge, or visiting artist for various programs. In 2017, The San Antonio Film Commission hired me to write ten scenes, and I've been involved in several productions, mostly shorts.

On a personal note, I'm married with a couple of great (grown) kids. Trivia about me:
-- worked at NSA for thirteen years
-- lived overseas for nine years (UK and Australia).
-- fostered a joey kangaroo named Alice.

I look forward to getting to know some folks.

Unique traits: Learning is food. Get a fresh supply daily and know your source.
